. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver
have no budget from the president, in violation of the law. he gets his ncaa bracket in on time but still no budget. this is the fourth time in five years. he set a new record this year, two months with no plan, while we had trillion-dollar deficits and a debt crisis on the horizon. his party leaders, unfortunately, failing offering a serious account of our challenge. no serious plan to grow our economy or create jobs. no plan to ever balance the budget. take more. trillions of dollars more to spend more in washington. that's what got us in this mess in the first place. so what can be done? the good news is that we now have a vehicle for regular order. the democrats derailed the budget process each of the last few years and stopped governing when they stopped budgeting. at least we now have a budget process that's moving. we brought them back in the game this spring. that's a good thing. so what's going to happen in the weeks ahead? well, we will make the case for our priorities. whether the gentleman from maryland wants to acknowledge it or not, we have divided government. the

duck for two months over the summer was that under the campaign finance laws, he couldn't use money that he'd already raised until after he received the nomination for president in august. i believe that our primary process is way too long. i think our calendar needs to be looked at. i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates with candidates slicing and dicing each other, and i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. we're going to set up a commission that's going to make that decision. i'm going to be a part of that. i'm going to chair that commission. ut no more august conventions. scommoip we're taking republican thoughts on those changes that reince priebus was talking about. give us a call. the phone numbers, we'll put up for you. we're doing our lines regionally for republicans just in this first segment of the "washington journal" tosmede a few other stories that are out there -- obama to pick tom perez for labor. that's the headline of the politico story this morning. pre

, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a recipe for disaster that is irresponsible and unjustified. to make matters worse, many of these individuals lack the money, family, support and the ability to get a job, not just because they are present in violation of the law, but because they have a right -- a criminal record ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. we learned that 72% of the people released an okra record at all. another 21% had convictions for one or two misdemeanors only. unless to rector martin, who we welcome here today, tells us something different, this means that 93% of the people released by ice were not criminals or low, low level offenders. second, the title of the as for whether this was motivated by policy or politics, from my investigations, i don't believe it was either. i don't believe it was policy because we have no

operates the national and state criminal and background check system. we have to enforece the laws that we have. even the momentary glance at the laws we have proves there are holes in our system that even with adequate enforcement would not keep guns out of the hands that seek to do us harm. i'm focused on the fact that those on the terror watch list do not raise a flag in the system. what are those on the terror watch list and not automatically denied a fire arm from licensed firearms dealer and should it person?s listing on the list be a factor in the denial of a firearm? >> the reason those on the terrorist watch list [indiscernible] one of the factors is listed in the statute. there is legislation being discussed in terms of what more can be done to expand these prohibitive factors or to expand it and other ways the use of nix to bar the sale of guns. >> so a person can be on the terror watch list and yet we have to pass legislation to ensure that a person on that list can't purchase a gun. >> that is my understanding. >> the president has indicated he plans to devote additional resou
. currently, it is against the law to purchase a gun if you are a criminal or have a dangerous record but not all require background checks. democrats are trying to put forward a bill that requires universal background checks. that has been the top priority for president obama. this bill will not include the assault weapons ban, which would ban certain types of high- capacity assault rifles and other weapons. there was not enough support in the senate to feel like that was possible to include and be able to pass the floor in the senate. it is a bit of a blow to the president agenda. host: here is the headline in the "washington post" -- how significant is it that the lead democrats and the senate is coming up with something and is going to move forward? it is significant that it is harry reid. prided himself on the support he received from the nra. he was able to use the support of gun rights groups to defeat in aepublican opponents difficult race. he has been reluctant to support gun control throughout the years. since the newtown shooting, he has been largely silent on the issue. it
. that is under current law, the law the president supports. he changed to make that, so it is financially feasible. our program would move us in the direction of premium support, which is what members of congress have. it will allow for a certain amount of money subsidy, a benefit check, if you will, for seniors to be able to utilize that to purchase what they want for themselves so they are able to have an insurance program that is much more responsive to them. as a physician, medicare patients are having a whale of a time finding doctors to take medicare. if you are a new medicare patients and your doctor prior to the agencies the five does not take medicare patients, you have a very difficult time finding a new dr. who will take a new medicare patient. one out of every three doctors in this country have limited the number of patients they are seeing. see no of every eight medicare patients at all. the program is flawed and needs to be reformed. we need to strengthen medicare. our guest,rice is republican of georgia. we are talking about budgetary matters. the numbers are on the screen.
challenges for law enforcement as they have no profile and their experiences and motives are also -- are often distinct. for a moment, i would like to discuss the cyber threat, which has evolved over the past decade. cyber criminals have become increasingly adept at exploiting weaknesses in our networks, and once inside, they can infiltrate government and military information, as well as our valuable and -- intellectual property. organized criminal act cyber send the kids and in deal -- ideologically driven activist groups. willieve the cyber threat be cool or eclipse the terrorist threat in the future. we are enhancing our capabilities. we have focused our cyber division on addressing computer intrusions and network attacks. each of our offices have become cyber task forces. we're cloud there -- collaborating and sharing with our federal partners more than ever in the context of a national cyber joint task force, which has 19 military, law- enforcement agencies working together to stop current attacks and prevent them in the future. we also recognize that the private sector is th

of what was lawful and what wasn't lawful and what might we been able to do. formulations committee has jurisdiction. armed services has jurisdiction. that's four committees i can name off the top of my head, mr. speaker. each of them have taken some kind of look into this. here's what happens. if you take a situation like benghazi or any major incident and you break it down into four components and you assign or the jurisdiction of each committee chair would look at this and claim jurisdiction, which they rightfully can do in this congress, they would take their component of it, study it, they might write out a report, and might be complete and it might be completely accurate. they can send that out. the unclassified portion, to the american people. that report goes out. then say that select committee on intel. then, mr. speaker, the foreign affairs committee can meet and they can call their witnesses that they choose to do so, and gather that information and perhaps write a completely objective and completely truthful report, and send it out to the public. all of that that's not class

said, we changed the law so that any adult who commits a crime with a knife can expect to be sent to prison, and for a serious offence, they should expect a very log sentence. i will happily look at what my honorable friend suggests. my right honorable friend the justice secretary is currently reviewing the powers available to the courts to deal with knife possession and will bring forward proposals in due course. >> mr. ed miliband. >> in the light of his u-turn on alcohol pricing, is there anything the prime minister could organize in a brewery?

to become law. anything they put in that bill is going to become law. the budget is a resolution. it's not binding. it is likely going to head to conference with the house republicans but even then some of the little things we saw like a vote yesterday in the senate to repeal the medical device tax in obama care, not going to be binding. so even though they took dozens and dozens, they considered more than a hundred amendments in the last 24 hours, none of those will have effect. t was mostly symbolic. host: we go to james. caller: everybody is complaining about government shutdown and all the situations we are dealing with. i want to ask the question why isn't anybody going back to the root of this situation when we got into this with president bush with illegal war. now president obama is bringing the soldiers back and the war is over. where are the funds from that to be utilized back into society and all the oil we got from you is dam hugh sane. why isn't going back to the fact the reason we got into this is what happened with bush and his administration and obama had to pull us o
decided to cut on order security, first responders, and law enforcement. the director of u.s. immigration and customs recently testified before a house subcommittee that for budgetary reasons, more than 2 2200 illegl immigrants and 10 high-level offenders were released back onto our streets. at the same time, news outlets reported that the transportation security administration signed a new deal to purchase millions of dollars of new uniforms. how is it that we have money for new uniforms, but not enough to keep dangerous criminals behind bars? we could have prevented this kind of nonsense if washington had a budget. rather than having a budget battle between republicans and democrats, we should have a dialogue about american priorities. what are those priorities? 75% of americans support a balanced budget oh stop three out of five believe we should in a targeted way. americans say the economy and jobs are the most important challenges facing the country today. we have a moral obligation to make that people's priorities our priorities eerie at this budget debate is not about dollars. it i
the interest in her should be every bit as much as for her mother-in-law. she is a woman who saw more of the governments of the world than most women of that day. in london, berlin, st. petersburg, washington. she truly experiences and reflects on these experiences through her letters and diaries and memoirs in a way that ring a richness to our understanding of the. she lived in -- of the period she lived in. >> and a life of tragedy. she lived through extraordinary events. crossed paths with remarkable historical figures. it was in the life where she suffered loss after loss. presidency turned out to be, in many ways, disappointing. that is not the note on which the story ends. there is real inspiration there for all of us. >> thank you, as always for your expertise. amanda, nice to meet you and thank you for helping us learn more about louisa catherine adams through your extensive work on her papers. thanks to you for being with us and the white house historical association for their help in producing this series.

as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei

on increasingly -- on law enforcement, in counterinsurgency will be will be supported by the afghan national army. the four south of kabul has grown dramatically, both in capacity and numbers, adding brigades and units and capacity over the last 18 months. commandingcommander the big red one has been magnificent in bringing the along to builds capacity to be able to fight credibly. we have this organic layering of police elements that will be supported by the maneuver elements of the police, which in turn will be supported by the afghan national army which is being cited in key locations to conduct operations against the red light's coming out of pakistan, the potential safe havens, and they afghanistan, and support areas. and they're supported by afghan commandos. and increasingly you will see the fielding of the mobil site -- of the mobile strike force battalions. five in the northeast. armoredhighly mobile units that will give the afghans the capable -- the capability to move to keep aerospace is. -- two key battle spaces. if i had a map like to lay this out for you in a way that would give yo
. inler: i just wanted to say my opinion, i don't think that there ought to be a law banning relatives from working on campaigns. , soad is a business owner i worked for my dead for 10 years. i don't think there's a problem -- i work for my dad. we need to find more confidence in someone you already know. the issue here is the salary that these people are being paid. friends thatse helped work in campaigns. they are doing just as big a are making 30,000 dollars a year, $5,000 a year. when you hear a relative is making a lot over the course of those years, that is over $60,000 a year. that is where the issue is. thatere is any regulation should be passed, it is regulating the salaries that they should be making. giving a fair salary to everybody and not just preference to relatives. interestingis an question. you are right. it affects morale. 32 members of congress dispensed more than $2 million in campaign funds to pay relative salaries during the last election cycle. louisville, kentucky, independent caller. caller: thank you for having me on. i am not a smart and politics as i should
of this juncture. at the beginning, when we were traditional -- transitional administrative law and later on when the peace was negotiated, there was an assumption that the players were going to abide by the rules. this assumption was wrong. some had no intention of abiding. they went along, but as soon as they got into power, they started flouting the rules, blatantly. , it is stateditly in the constitution of certain institutions are independent, like the central bank. the law made clear that it was independent of the government. was the head of the media committee, and restructured a media commission that was intended to be independent. all of these have been reined in and the auspices and the control of the prime minister have done it on the basis of, well, these all have some executive functions and therefore they should be part of it. they are abusing the semantic definition. that really means a kind of of allng of the power these institutions, which are the guardians of the democratic system. , what do weave gone have for this democracy? the americans should make it clear where they stand
a sufficient forces. to establish security conditions and to address the vacuum of power and ruled law left after the unseating of the hussein regime. maininal of the four continuities in the nature of war is that war is a contest of wills. we have to communicate our determination to see the effort brew that sustainable outcome consistent with our interest and worthy of the sacrifice and investments we have made in the outcome of that work. so overall, i think it would be fair to say that we are oftentimes fixated when looking back on a conflict, on how we did on the physical battleground, how we really operated against the field of forces of our enemy organizations. what we have to do is think about how we operate and how we plan to achieve a sustainable political outcome consistent with our interest. this is a particularly important lesson now, because as we look at the war in iraq, the ongoing war in afghanistan where we still have 66,000 troops every day, there will be a tendency to again define a problem, the war in a way we think we can solve that problem in a way that is fast, cheap,
laska. guest: that highlights the fact that this use breaks the rules and breaks the law. we don't know what is happening in these cases. they are still investigating. it does not mean they have done anything wrong. in the case of andrews, it is alleged that he used campaign funds to take his wife and two daughters to a wedding in cotland. host: here is the story that it is a ledge that he used campaign funds to take his wife and daughter to a wedding in scotland. thank you. guest: thank you for having me. >> the senate is working on the 20 14th federal budget. ma.y are having a voterabm they could be there all night and into the early hours of tomorrow morning. joining us on the phone, kathleen hunter. she reports for bloomberg news. they have been taking a slew of amendment votes. what is going on? >> this is a voterama. it has been four years since he had one of these on the senate floor. the senate has not done a budget in four years. they take several hours. sometimes 12, routine hours. two-minute debates. .hen the next amendment two-minute debate. five-minute vote. proposal

this house was led by democrats, and you can see the laws that they have passed and the amazing amount of spending that it would place upon our country. we don't even show in here individually where social security is that will go bankrupt. medicare, bankrupt. medicaid, insolvent. our inability to be able to pay or our future by creating jobs today. the free enterprise system is exactly what republicans support and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is every
a budget in three years. that enforces discipline. we are required by law and the budget resolution, a statutory requirement by april 15, and we have ignored it for three consecutive years. that has to happen. it is not as if we have been overwhelmed in the past with our schedule. i mentioned that this morning. the only thing that was predictable was our recess scheduled. we had sufficient time to ddress these issues. once you lose the discipline on that factor, you lose your discipline on everything else. the idea of no budget, no pay, which is endorsed, hopefully goes forward, it is one way of forcing the accountability on the part of elected officials. but it has to happen. people should demand that they are there five days a week, and as tom was saying, a certain senate when tom was majority and minority leaders, and we had a 50-50 senate in 2001. and the tie was broken by vice president cheney. we got through it. there were a lot of bipartisan initiatives. e did a great job. we confuse our differences and we cannot do that anymore. i think that we have to return o the basic and
